Anubhuti coaches are train coaches that are equipped with aircraft like facilities. These coaches have various enhanced features when compared to Executive class coaches of Shatabdi trains. In addition to revamping work under progress by the Indian Railways, new and enhanced anubhuti coaches are all set to replace AC first class Executive Chair Car coaches in some Shatabdi trains.
